Burlington Swimming Accident Lawyers

Accidents occurring at swimming pools, on public beaches and around Jacuzzis may include:

  • Drowning
  • Near-drowning, with resulting hypoxic brain injury
  • Poolside slip-and-fall accidents
  • Accidents involving diving boards, water slides and similar fixtures
  • Diving accidents
  • Electrocution caused by faulting wiring in the lighting or other electrical systems
  • Internal injuries caused by suction through filter openings

These and other swimming-related accidents occur in all types of facilities, ranging from private clubs to city pools. School outings or private parties attracting groups of people to rivers, lakes and seaside areas sometimes become the setting for hazardous activities as well as “freak accidents.” Homeowners with in-ground pools or above-ground pools are sometimes said to have kept “attractive nuisances” when young people climb fences and gain entry to those pools without permission or supervision. Pool injuries occurring near commercial establishments sometimes lead to dram shop claims against bars and restaurants that have served excessive amounts of alcohol to patrons.

Whatever the circumstances of the swimming or waterside recreational activity you were engaged in at the time of an accident, talk to a premises liability lawyer promptly. Learn how you can protect your right to pursue fair compensation for your injuries or loss of your loved one by drowning.
